Forex Analysis: GBPUSD Regains Foothold Above 1.60
Prices rebounded from resistance at 1.5911 – the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement – completing a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern and re-taking the 1.60 figure. The bulls are now challenging falling trend line resistance set from mid-September (1.6150), with a break above that exposing double top resistance at 1.6303. A reversal below 1.60 targets 1.5911 anew. Risk/reward considerations argue against entering a trade with prices right at resistance and we will stand aside for now.
